    Winnipeg’s municipal election on Oct. 24 is being ushered in with a huge roster of mayoral and councillor candidates, many with dense and complex platforms or with no clear summary of their positions at all. This can be a lot for voters to take in, especially with many new faces in the race.

  • Don’t hold your applause
